“Rikki’s plans for social, economic, and political
endeavors will serve to put government in the
hands of the people.”

“Legalize marijuana, and use the proceeds as
a tool for funding better schools, increasing employment
via public works projects, and minimizing the impact of
social welfare systems on the taxpayer.”

“At age 14, Rikki began working at McDonald’s as
a cashier and felt that this path was more realistic than
schooling. Rikki received several promotions and was eventually given a management position at the age of 18.
It is at this point that Rikki’s life took a dramatic turn.”
